Is 20 to 40 minutes a day enough ...
I have been doing very seriously since September 2011 and I incorporated Hanging into my routine at the end of November.
For me stealth is a significant issue because of the number of people / children that live in my house and as a result I am only able to consistently get in 20 minutes of hanging a day. On a good day I get as much as 40 mins.
I hang 15 lbs with a Wrench and I am really only doing SD hanging. I expect to be moving up to 17.5 lbs in a week or so.
I also do
* 20-25 minutes of Jelqing / ulis (ending with 10 minutes of intense clamping)
* 20-25 minutes of manual stretches using golf weights as a fulcrum at several places on the shaft.
* Between sessions I wear an ADS as much as I can (usually to 3 hours a day)
(Stealth is less of an issue for these parts on my routine)
Since I am not able to get in a longer duration of hanging. Should I abandon the hanging effort and devote more time and attention to the manual stretching?
My gains were very good from Sept to December but I have hit a plateau since the end of December.
I like hanging .. and I have finally worked out how to wrap effectively, but I don’t want to waste time with it if the 20 minutes a day that i can commit is mot enough to be effective.
